Gurudwara Sachcha Sauda Chuharkana

This holy place is situated at a distance of 37 miles from Lahore on the Lahore-Lyallpur Railway Line. Guru Nanak was sent by Mehta Kalu with a sum of Rs.20/- to teach him the know-how of the business. On the way to his destination, the Guru happened to meet certain sadhus who seemed to be hungry. The Guru responded well to the occasion and got prepared a langer for the sadhus. Mehta Kalu felt annoyed.                                                                                       Where Guru Nanak Ji fed the sadhus, now stands a magnificent Gurudwara that was built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, on the pattern of a fortress. The building of the Gurudwara is very beautiful. The very impression of the Darshani Deorhi attracts the congregations.

 

In the begining, the service of the Gurdwara was in the hands of Udhasis. The management came under the Panthic administration after the Gurdwara Reform Movement. After the partition of the country; the Gurdwara remain closed for the congregations, but on the occassion of the Baisakhi in April 1993, the sangats were allowed to pay homage to the Gurdwara
